What you described isnt what i would classify as a typical sidebar users and
what MSO utilizes as a sidebar is different to what LO has as a sidebar. LO's
sidebar is comparable to the sidebar found in iWork and Calligra.

Dont think this default should ever change and doubt many additional dialogs
will be added to the sidebar that would likely change this situation. There
will always be users who dont want to use the sidebar, so we shouldnt force the
sidebar to pop open unless they have specifically asked this to happen.
